To kick off the summer season, Crocs and Salehe Bembury are generating excitement with a sneak peek of their latest collaboration, the Pollex Clog, in a vibrant golden yellow colorway. This new version of the popular foam clog features grooves designed to resemble Bembury's fingerprints, adding a unique touch to the design. The clogs also include perforated holes for enhanced ventilation in areas that tend to get hot. The adjustable strap and curved toe sections are accented with darker orange tones, completing the eye-catching look.

These limited-edition Pollex clogs, priced at $85, will be available for purchase through a drawing on Crocs' website from August 23 at 12 p.m. EST to August 24 at 12 p.m. EST. Winners will be notified if they have been selected and will receive one pair of the coveted clogs.

Fans of the collaboration can't wait to find out if there will be more colorways, silhouettes, or versions of Croc styles in the future. The Crocs x Salehe Bembury partnership has captured the attention of fashion enthusiasts, and everyone is eager to see what they have in store.

This spring, Salehe Bembury released new pairs of his Crocs Pollex clogs, offering a comfortable and visually striking addition to anyone's shoe collection. Drawing inspiration from his own fingerprints, Bembury created whirls and lines that adorn the Classic Clog silhouette. In May, three monochrome colorways in light purple, lime green, and white were introduced.

The collaboration between Salehe Bembury and Crocs began with the launch of the Pollex clog on December 14, 2021. These clogs feature swirling textures in Cucumber and Menemsha tones, providing both style and traction. The perforated upper holes and textured footbeds ensure comfort and ventilation. The foam straps, adjustable and removable, add versatility to the design, transforming them into slipper-style shoes.

The collaboration's campaign, featuring models Cynthia Erivo and Jess Hu, showcases the Pollex clogs in a minimalist gray setting adorned with elements of modernity and nature. Reflecting the natural colorways and Crocs' contemporary approach, the campaign captures the essence of both partners.

Salehe Bembury left Crocs fans eagerly anticipating the second drop of the Pollex clogs. Teasing the line throughout the fall of 2021, Bembury unveiled the dark green Cucumber and taupe Menemsha colorways on Instagram. He also hinted at a white version of the Pollex clog, sparking curiosity among fans.

However, the release of the collaboration was not without its challenges. Bots flooded the launch on Crocs' and other retailers' websites, causing delays and making it difficult for genuine shoppers to purchase the sought-after Pollex clogs. Bembury, along with disappointed fans, expressed their frustration on social media. The involvement of bots in limited-edition product launches has become a recurring issue, creating conflicts reminiscent of the Telfar tote bag scarcity in 2020. Resale platforms like GOAT and StockX profited from the situation, selling the Pollex clogs at inflated prices ranging from $400 to $602, far beyond the original $85 price tag.

In response to the bot controversy, Bembury took a stand against resale bots, vowing to cancel bot orders. The impact of this action on the availability and restocking of the Pollex clogs remains to be seen, but it reassures shoppers that Bembury is on their side.

Apart from purchasing through Crocs' website or other authorized retailers, fans were given the opportunity to enter a drawing to secure their own limited-edition pair. Winners were personally notified by Crocs.

Collaborations have become a signature of Crocs, with the brand teaming up with various celebrities and big brands. Justin Bieber, Diplo, Post Malone, "Cruella," and KFC are just a few examples of the successful partnerships Crocs has forged.

With the latest Pollex clog colorway, Crocs and Salehe Bembury continue to captivate the fashion world with their innovative and stylish collaboration. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting partnership!
